Holy crap. We have a Nor’easter headed our way – anywhere from 6 to 12 inches of snow is predicted. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time and if you were along for the ride last winter when I was here by my lonesome, you know how I feel about this.
Just in time for Thanksgiving.
But I digress. Let’s take a tour of the dollhouse office/studio and I’ll list where everything came from for you.
